Announcing the 2019 KET Young Writers Contest!

Do you have a story to tell? We want to hear it!

Each year, KET Education hosts a writing contest for emerging young authors across the commonwealth and beyond. We invite students in Kindergarten through third grade to submit illustrated stories, students in fourth and fifth grades to submit short stories, and students in sixth through eighth grades to submit poetry. Winners are selected at each grade level and prizes awarded.

New! This year, we are inviting students in ninth through twelfth grades to submit their poetry! Overall high school winners will be selected and prizes awarded.

The contest officially opens January 2, 2019 with the deadline to enter April 15, 2019. Check out the official rules, updated scoring rubrics, and past winners, then check back soon for the online entry form. We can’t wait to read your pieces!
